Synopsis

Recommended for ages 3+.

Join Possum and his bush friends in this rhyming read-aloud story, perfect to share for an Aussie Christmas.

From his lofty watch post, Possum is drawn to the sight of a distant tree covered in sparkling trinkets. A Christmas Tree, according to Kookaburra. So begins a quest in which Possum and his crafty crew of helpers try very hard to decorate their very own Christmas gum tree from Bowerbird’s treasure trove. But it’s not as easy as you might think!
